Making long distance relationships work is tough, but not impossible. Since our mission, here at KeepCalling is to help you stay in touch with your loved ones wherever they are, we want to give you an extra hand this February. So we thought of a short list of weapons which can help you fight against the obstacles which naturally occur in a long distance relationship. After all, it’s the month of love. <3
Make sure you’re both on the same page – at all times
Talking about your relationship and being open towards each other play the most important part in a long distance relationship. You need to know what your partner feels about your being apart, how they see the future, and what they’re willing to do to make your relationship grow. Nothing can be achieved without complete honesty, especially in such a tricky, sometimes complicated situation as a long distance relationship.
Communication, communication, communication
Needless to say, no relationship can exist without communication. Even though you’re miles and miles apart, you and your loved one can still stay in touch like nothing’s changed. KeepCalling.com helps you call and text at the lowest rates, while benefitting form the highest service quality.
Pursue common interests, even if apart
Together apart. Get involved in the same activity even if you’re separated by hundreds upon hundreds of miles. Perhaps read the same book, look at the starry sky while on the phone with each other, or cook the same meal and try to guess whose tastes better. Another idea would be to order the same takeaway and watch the same movie for a fun date that will remind you of the quality movie nights you used to spend together. The whole idea is: come up with your own, innovative ways to bond.
Enjoy the benefits of snail mail
Write love letters. Send small gifts, cards, or send flowers for no reason. The gesture is more important than the actual object. Your partner will definitely appreciate the thought and effort you put into this little surprise.
Work around your schedules
Some days you’re so busy and tired that after working for 12 hours straight, all you want to do when you get home is hide under the sheets and sleep for the next 12 straight hours. Your partner may find themselves in the same situation once in a while, so you need to show understanding for the times when they’re not available to catch up with you. It goes both ways, of course. You can, however, send a short message showing your support and unconditional love.
Visit as often as you can
… or meet somewhere in the middle. It’s sometimes easier, cheaper, not to mention more fun to meet in a place away from both your homes. It will feel like a mini vacation and it will always add an extra spark to the precious time you spend together. Anyway, bottom line is wherever you meet, there is nothing better to keep your love alive than face to face interaction.
And speaking of love, make sure to stick around for next week’s Valentine’s special. It’s dedicated to your own long distance relationship. 😉
